NTD’s Fifth Annual International Chinese Culinary Competition
Five Thousand Year in a Single Bite!
September 27-28, 2012
New York City, Times Square
When someone speaks of gourmet dining, perhaps the first thing that will come to mind is an Italian dish like Carne Pizzaiola, or perhaps French like Boeuf Bourguignon, or maybe even Japanese Sea Bream Sashimi. But no one thinks of Kung Pao Chicken, Orange Beef, or egg rolls. And there’s a very good reason for it – none of this is authentic, traditional Chinese cooking. China boasts 5,000 years of jaw dropping recipes, and yet in the West, when people think of Chinese food, they usually think of cheap, low quality dishes loaded with MSG.
NTD Television’s Fifth Annual International Chinese Culinary Competition is out to change that by bringing together the top Chinese chefs from around the world and have them demonstrate the unparalleled cooking techniques, knife skills, and imagination inherent in traditional Chinese cuisine.
This kind of world-class cooking deserves a world-class stage. That’s why NTD hosts this yearly competition in the heart of New York’s Time Square, to elevate Chinese cuisine to an international level, so that when someone says “gourmet cooking,” they’ll think of Chinese right along with Italian, French, or Japanese.
The competition showcases the five major styles of Chinese cuisine: Sichuan, Shandong, Cantonese, Huaiyang, and Northeastern (Heilongjiang province, Jilin province, and Liaoning province) over the course of two days, including the preliminary and finals round. Prizes will be awarded to each of the 5 cuisines including a $10,000 gold prize, $3,000 silver prize, and a $1,000 bronze prize.
Come and meet CiCi Li and many other well known MCs at this event! I’m so excited for this event and can’t wait to meeting you!
